Pakistan: Thousands Of Protesting Muslims Burn Down Church, Christian School, Homes, Cinemas, Banks, Vehicles Torched


By Stefan J. Bos, BosNewsLife – “ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN (BosNewsLife)– Thousands of Muslims burned down a Lutheran church as well as its school and adjacent homes in Pakistan Friday, September 21, injuring several Christians in violent protests against an anti-Islam film that elsewhere killed dozens of Pakistanis, church sources and rights activists told BosNewsLife.

In published remarks, Lutheran Bishop Humphrey Peter said a crowd of some 8,000 people, many of them carrying petrol, attacked the St.Paul Church complex in Mardan city in Pakistan’s North-West Frontier Province.

‘The St.Paul Church, its school and the houses of the principal and pastor along with a vehicle were burned by a mob,’ he said in a statement released by Pakistan-based rights group World Vision In Progress (WVIP).

Several people staying inside the church complex were beaten, added WVIP Executive Director Farrukh H. Saif.

Saif suggested that many more people could have been killed or injured in Friday’s church attack.

‘Nearly 500 students are studying at the primary and secondary school of the Lutheran church. But nobody was there now because it was a holiday in Pakistan,’ he told BosNewsLife…

Saif said that elsewhere in Pakistan at least 22 people died in clashes between Muslim protesters and security forces.

‘According to the reports we received from hospital sources in the city of Karachi alone there were 15 killings, while four others died in Peshawar, two in other parts of Punjab province and at least one in the capital Islamabad.’

Additionally ‘hundreds were injured,’ he said.

More than 100 were wounded in Karachi alone, according to Allah Bachayo Memon, spokesman of the chief minister of Sindh province.

He told reporters about 20 vehicles, three banks and five cinemas were set on fire.” Read more.

    I don’t know how anyone in the Obama administration can sleep at night, they gave these murderers the excuse, not that they needed one, to go on this killing spree. They now have blood on their hands. Hillary’s daughter married a Jew. Does she think that her daughter, or her Jewish baby, if and when they have one, would be spared by these demons? I wouldn’t count on it if I were her.
